Living in Llandinam: the local area guide

With the Llandinam hills dominating the skyline and the verdant countryside luring in those seeking a quieter, calmer pace of life, the village and community of Llandinam is one of beauty. Situated in the heart of wales, halfway between Llanidloes and Newtown, Llandinam (which belongs to the principal area of Powys) consists of small hamlets like Plas Dinam and Little London, several black and white timber framed cottages, quaint farms, a beautiful nature reserve, and the striking church of St Llonio.

Despite it’s obvious natural beauty, the village is more known for the work of its former resident - David Davies. An entrepreneur and industrialist who had considerable influence during the industrial revolution. So much so, the village dedicated a statue to him, which now stands proudly at the end of the cast iron bridge (which Davies built).

Most people are drawn to Llandinam due to its close proximity to other popular destinations. As the village sits on the A470 road, Aberystwyth, Shrewsbury, Newtown, Caersws and Snowdonia National Park can all be reached with ease. These factors naturally make Llandinam an ideal spot to purchase a second or holiday home.

Demographics

When the Census was conducted back in 2011, it reported that over 1,400 individuals call Llandinam home. These individuals are divided into 587 households. 74% of these households are made up of families – indicating that Llandinam is an excellent place to raise your children.

53% of the population are also in employment, typically working in managerial or skilled trades occupations. The majority of residents typically travel to the adjoining neighbourhoods for work. There is also a significant number of retirees present, which is hardly surprising given the quiet nature of this rural haven.

Education

Parents with young children will be delighted to know that the village is home to one brilliant primary school. Llandinam C.P. School currently has 57 pupils on its roll between the ages of 3 and 11. When it was last inspected in 2013, Estyn awarded it a rating of ‘Good’ – the second highest rating possible.

For secondary education, children must venture to either Llanidloes or Newtown to attend school. Llanidloes High School teaches pupils from the age of 11 to 18 years. Once pupils complete their education, they often leave with excellent achievements. 90% achieve 3 core subjects, 69% achieve the Level 2 Threshold and 100% achieve the Level 3 Threshold. These incredible figures showcase the school’s effort at educating children to a high standard.

Newtown High School, the other option, also teaches pupils between the ages of 11 and 18. Though when Estyn last inspected the school in 2015, they awarded it an ‘Adequate’ status. Irrespective of this, the number of pupils achieving 3 core subjects, at the Level 2 and 3 threshold was much higher than the national average.

Transport

Getting in and around Llandinam is quite a simple affair. As mentioned prior, the village sits on the A470 road, providing easy access to towns and cities like Newtown and Shrewsbury. However, there is no train station present in Llandinam. One, however, can be found a mere four minutes away in Caersws. The Caersws railway station runs on the Cambrian line and has regular services running to Aberystwyth, Shrewsbury and Birmingham.

Further transport opportunities are provided by Celtic Travel. Their bus service transport passengers to the picturesque villages and towns in the surrounding area. A National Express service running from Aberystwyth to London also stops in the village.

Amenities and shopping

You won’t find dazzling department stores, designer boutiques, let alone a High Street in this humble village, but don’t let that deter you. A post office and shop loyally supply you with essential goods so that you can complete your weekly food shop.

For more choice and retail offerings, a visit to one of the larger towns is required. A trip to Newtown should more than suffice. In this large market town, the largest in Powys, you’ll find an abundance of charming pubs, cafes, independent stores and beloved High Street brands.
